What the hell is wrong with society that no one does anyone in the face of evil criminal acts? Are we such a society that a bunch of assholes will VIDEOTAPE a 15 year old girls assault which lasted 2 hours, with their cell phones instead of calling 911? No they called others so the crowd grew larger. and still no one helped that poor child. She was traumatized and assualted so badly, that she had to be airlifted to the hospital.
Why arent parents teaching moral character? I hope and pray to God that the non participants are arrested as well. I am sure that many were teens as this girl was walking home afterhomecoming and the attack happened near her school. Two arrests have been made so far of her 7 attackers.

Newser) – Two arrests have been made in a homecoming night rape of a 15-year-old high school student that was witnessed by as many as 15 do-nothing bystanders. Some may have even participated in the two-hour attack in a San Francisco suburb while others apparently filmed the assault with cell phones, according to police. No one called police or helped the victim. "As people announced over time that this was going on, more people came to see, and some actually participated," said a police official.

Newser) – San Francisco-area cops have arrested three more young men in the savage gang rape, beating, and robbery of a 15-year-old girl outside her homecoming dance while dozens more watched. Five youths are being held, ranging from a 15-year-old boy who knew the victim to a 21-year-old. The girl was drinking outside the dance Saturday night, reports the San Francisco Chronicle, and the group turned on her when she became drunk. Charges are expected today.
I pose this to you... DO SOMETHING.
Can you imagine her terror and her shame, not only for the assault but for the fact that others watched and did nothing. She must blame herself for being in this situation because she got drunk with these boys/men . Which still does not excuse their behavior in any way shape or form.
I was beaten once by my ex at a party, which nothing compared to what this poor child went through, and I started thinking I must deserve this cus no one is stopping it. Victims blame themselves, it is automatic it seems, that we try to find ways to sort it out....no matter how wrong our thinking is. The assualt or beatings or whatever are bad enough, but when we find out someone saw it or knew of it and did nothing, we feel another conflicting things: anger at others, rage, terror of people, society and loss of trust.
